Quotes

Spikings: [barely controling his rage] Instead of pretending to know where it is, why don't you just maybe go out and start looking for the caviar instead.
Dempsey: [snaps fingers] You know something? That's a good idea.

Classic TV from the 80 s
9 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a great TV show this was. Just watched the feature length 1st episode.There was some good action(Specially for a TV show) great one liners and it moved along very quickly.The cars look dated now and Mrs Barber out fits are a bit butch but it does stand the test of time unlike some shows from the same time.Michael Brandon is a very good leading man and should have been a bigger star than he is. Why they only made 3 seasons, 30 episodes is a shame.It could have run for a bit longer i am sure. Highly recommended to anyone who likes the action shows of the 70s and 80s.Go and get the DVD box set(1&2 in the Uk only) and enjoy this classic show.
